  • William Blair named to helm Trimble football program

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    There’s a new coach in town. The newly hired interim football coach for the Trimble County High School football team is William K. Blair.

  • Summer education programs

    For many students, the end of the school year does not mean an end to time spent with a teacher.

    In fact, hundreds work as hard during summer vacation as they do during the rest of the year.  Two of the most popular programs Kentucky offers are Governor’s Scholars and the Governor’s School for the Arts, both of which give select high school students a chance to spend several weeks on a college campus with others as driven as they are.

  • Photo exhibit ends this week at library

    Recently, I traveled from a flower garden in Milton to a ballgame in Carrollton then to a nursing home in Cincinnati where four lively ladies were celebrating over 400 years of living. From there I went to see the Brooklyn Bridge and then to Tokyo Towers in Japan.

    I did all of this at the Trimble County Public Library through photographs taken by Phyllis Codling McLaughlin, former editor of The Trimble Banner and The News-Democrat.
